I will say that considering his inconsistent nature, if I were a GM, I would seriously consider trading him the moment his value increases. Not saying that we don't need the goals, but this team forever needs to manage it's assets to remain financially viable.

The main point of what Armstrong said was that this is Stewart's year to prove himself, not just to our team but to the league. I think he can and will improve both his offensive and defensive game, whether or not it's enough for him to maintain his current salary with the Blues or any other NHL team is yet to be seen.
You do realize that Tank has already agreed in principle to play in the NHL, he hasn't signed his ELC yet because a clause in the CBA stipulates that you cannot sign rookies between June 1st-July1st. He WILL be coming over and as long as he stays healthy, he will outproduce Stewarts numbers from last year, and very well may out produce him this year.
